I stumbled upon Bokeria accidentally while looking for dinner on my second night in Split. The restaurant’s beautiful interior and bustling diners made it seem like the perfect place to eat.
My two friends and I decided to try the Baked Brie starter plate to share. Spoiler alert: It was incredible! We found the best possible combination for all foods: start with a slice of bread, spread pistachio mayonnaise on it, add a slice of pear or peach, and then add the brie on top. This alone was enough to put me in a food coma.
Pictured below: Baked brie cheese with homemade crackers and pistachio mayonnaise (50kn).
For my main meal, I ordered the homemade dumplings, another amazing cheese-filled choice. My other friends ordered the risotto and bombolini, which were both just as good.
Pictured below, first picture, clockwise starting with the blue plate: Crispy fried bombolini with almond rosemary crust, filled with béchamel sauce & prosciutto on cream with Mediterranean herbs (55kn), Risotto with basil pesto, capers, apricot and pumpkin seeds (105kn), and Homemade “gnudi” (dumplings) filled with thyme and young cheese served on a homemade tomato and basil sauce (115kn). Second picture: Homemade “gnudi.”
We didn’t stop eating there. After looking at four dessert options, we settled on sharing a fruit cannoli and lavender cheesecake (pictured below, 30kn each).
Our total bill was over 300kn, but split between three people it wasn’t that bad. We ended up returning with another friend the following night (that’s how good it was). The wait staff was very friendly (we had the same waiter both nights, and he was very funny), the food was amazing, and we were provided with enough free bread and water to last our time there (which was over two hours on both nights).
This is easily one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten, and I suggest this restaurant to anyone traveling through Split. You can read more about Bokeria on their Instagram, Facebook, and Trip Advisor.
